Ravi, driver and hotel owner

Ravi Perera has been my regular driver in Sri-Lanka for many years.

Ravi helped me enormously in the early years and actually still does.

When I got to know Ravi he owned a small biscuit factory and had a truck driving around in front of this factory.

The containers with relief supplies that I sent to Sri-Lanka were unloaded in his warehouse and there selected and distributed by me for various destinations within Sri-Lanka. Ravi provided volunteers to help me and transportation.

After “big” biscuit factories were set up elsewhere in Sri-Lanka, which put prices under heavy pressure, Ravi decided to stop this and start hiring as a “private” driver.

From that time he drives tourists around. He guides and advises them during the trip in and through Sri-Lanka. Ravi is a very reliable and honest person who I recommend to anyone looking for a driver in Sri-Lanka.

Now he has also renovated a small hotel and started a Bed and Breakfast.
This is near his own house. He does this together with his family who are also dear to me.
All honest, warm and sincere people.

You won’t regret staying here. Info about the Bed and Breakfast can be found below or look at Booking.com
